(VOX) On Sunday, November 1, at 2 am, daylight saving time ends. We’ll set our clocks back one hour, heralding the end of daylight saving time for much of the country.

That means sunrise will happen one hour earlier on November 1 (sadly, it means sunset will occur one hour earlier as well.) For weekend workers, at least, it means an additional glorious hour of sleep on Sunday. Hurrah!
Yet as simple as it seems, there is still a lot of confusion about daylight saving time. The first thing to know: Yes, it ends in the fall, just as the decrease in daylight hours is becoming noticeable.
